MSC NEWS – NATIONAL REDRESS SCHEME
In an important step forward for those who have experienced institutional child sexual abuse, the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart have now been formally declared as a participating institution under the National Redress Scheme.
CHANGES TO NSW ROAD RULES
As of September 26, motorists no longer need to slow down to 40km/h when passing emergency vehicles whilst travelling on higher speed roads (with a speed limit of 90km/h or more). Instead, motorists will be required to slow down safely to a speed that is reasonable for the circumstances.
This change has come into effect to improve safety as it is more difficult to reduce your speed to 40km/h when travelling at higher speeds.
However, motorists must continue to slow to 40km/h when passing stationary tow trucks, breakdown assistance or emergency vehicles displaying flashing lights when travelling on lower speed roads (with a speed limit of 80km/h or less).
Motorists must also provide sufficient space between their vehicle and the stationary emergency or breakdown assistance vehicle and must change lanes if it is possible (and safe) to do so.
More information about these changes can be found here
